A little help please from all you lovely Funsters......

Carrying a spare loo cassette can be a very desirable thing, but storing it less so, especially if it's full!

For my fledging motorhome bits business, I've sourced an airtight and watertight tough box which is perfect to go in the garage for all the types of loo cassettes that suit the various rotating bowl loos found in many vans - but - some vans have the bench type loos with much longer cassettes, and sourcing a box for those is proving a little trickier.

How many modern vans actually have these though? Would you mind answering for me on this poll - do you have the smaller, squarer cassette to suit the rotating bowl type loo - similar to this (even if yours is not exactly the same - I know they vary in size a little):-

Or - do you have the bench type loo with a long, thin cassette, similar to this:-

I fitted one of these.


It's highly effective in that it's such a pain in the a*se to get the full cassette in it that I always remember to empty on time.
:LOL: Yeah, I've seen those, I did wonder what they'd be like to actually use! Not cheap either.

Would a pre-made frame capable of being mounted under the motorhome that the cassette slides into and locks not be more useful ?
Some of us don't have a garage 😕
Definitely, it's an option, but it then starts to become something that needs to be fairly bespoke to each vehicle and it's intrusive to fit, pushing the cost right up. It's also in competition with what Trevor Wbm has used above.

An airtight box (not just a waterproof one) is much more universal, needs no installation as it can go under a bed or in a locker if there is no garage, and can go from van to van.

There's room for both approaches.

Can’t imagine having to empty an even larger full cassette than the Thetford 😄

Ours is like the first but without the wheels.

We have a MH garage and just put the full one in there in a plastic bag and have never had a spillage nor smell, so we would not need a box, so would not be a customer for that item.

Mine is one of the long thin ones which has a three day capacity for two so not too bad.

Yippee a Toilet thread.

Current van has the swivel bowl, my previous van had a bench one I would think about 60% - 70% of vans have the swivel bowl.

Thanks everyone for all the feedback! I think that's given me a pretty good idea that the smaller cassettes are in much higher volume out there. I knew they were for my vintage of van (2006) but wasn't sure for the newer ones.

If anyone has a long cassette and really wants something then drop me a PM, I do have one option but it's very close if it will fit or not and, typically, it's more expensive.

Didn't know there was one like that - thank you.

That's fair enough, nothing is for everyone! Thanks for the feedback.

Do you have a link to your business? I might just need something.

We use a large crate/storage box already (on right of photo) which has the cassette and other stuff in too however as you can see hubby has already tried to break it! :mad: Ain't gaffer tape wonderful! :giggle:

To be fair though when the full cassette is in there we always put it in a bin-bag first and there's no niff so not sure if there's really a need for a fully airtight one, just a much stronger one, however in much warmer weather maybe the 'aroma' would be more obvious.

Just an addendum to my post above ... the reason we put it in a bin-bag is so that if there is a spill/leak the contents stay in that and it can be disposed of easily rather than having to clean a dirty crate.

I don't even put the lid on the crate, no smells at all. Plus no bin bag. I'd rather rinse out the plastic box and the bottom of the cassette than get unmentionables all on the inside of a plastic bag etc and get mucky.

I have a spare cassette below the bed in the area under.
It's inside one of those tough vacuum sealed bedding storage bags.
Never had to use it , so far 👍

Surely though if you get 'unmentionables' making a bid for freedom they'll already have run down the cassette and not just be on the bottom. It's easier to take the 'dirty' cassette in a black bag to a water point to clean it than carting a crate with it in or taking the cassette on it's own and risk it getting up close and personal with your leg etc as you carry it (wouldn't want to pull it if it was mucky)?
